He's bringing his mate home and he's not taking no for an answer.

It's a whole new world for the supernatural community. Their existence has been thrust into the spotlight and not everyone is thrilled.

Winter Leery has been away from home for ten years. Betrayed by her mate, she sought a new life on the east end of Long Island, New York far away from the pain and embarrassment of his rejection. A witch born with the gift to sooth a shifter's beast, she was recruited, trained, and inducted into the elite guard, sworn to protect the supernatural community and humans alike. A dangerous job she's kept hidden from her overprotective family for the last decade.

But, thanks to a crazed witch and his cruel vampire partner, her secret is out, her estranged mate is back, and her once under-active libido is suddenly raging like an inferno.

Tristan, alpha to his pack, has had his work cut out for him these last few years. With hate groups rising up all over the east coast, mating heat riding him hard, and his father hounding him to claim his mate, he's holding on by a thin thread. Unfortunately, his true mate left him ten years ago and he doubts she'll be back. He screwed up where Winter is concerned. For years, he's ignored his mating heat, refusing to force her return, but now, she's disappeared. With his protective instincts raging, he rushes to Long Island's east end to begin the hunt for the one woman he has never forgotten.

This time, he's bringing his mate home and he's not taking no for an answer.

Heart of a Wolf is the second installment  from the very talented K.D. Friedrich, after the well received debut Passion of a Witch (Book 1) I was excited to get this PNR. 

Loads of tangible and layered pages to love here. I had a blast getting to know these realistic characters and each ones own personal touch. The plot was well hashed out and knew exactly where it was going. You don't have to be a big name author to write some fantastic PNR, I was so pleased to once again not have any let down feelings or wishes for more. 

While I am not a big fan of the wolves (cause Vampires are the best!), Tristan is just hands down HOT. He had just about every alpha quality that I long for. Complex but strong. His sparks with Winter were steamy and I loved every minute of it.  Romance done right! 

This story is short enough to get the reader hooked and I liked that. Sometimes you don't need those filler pages, if a writer can rock it like this.....that's all you need. 

Certainly recommend this one to readers looking for a new saga!
